Who knew. Not me, I’m a novice on what happens in the woods during a snow storm. I found out today, the heavy snow had blanketed most of the feeders. The cold, wet, thaw, freeze of the last 48 hours, also brought down weak limbs. To this end I found several of the feeders on the ground, one very damaged, and the other not so bad, but in need of attention.
I sent myself to clearing off the snow, and putting out fresh seed so that the now hovering birds could eat, while I righted the refilled the feeders that had suffered during the storm.
At the Mer Bleue site, I was thrilled to see a bird that till that moment I had not seen, a Hoary red poll. When I get a picture I will share it with you.
Now that the birds have been fed. It is my turn, home made beef bone soup with fresh veggies and dried Chinese mushrooms. Yum
